Not sure what you mean -- the supporting library *does* exist...? (just
not in the mode that you want)

It's LANL's strange fascination with static builds that causes the
problem. ;-)

Seriously, I can see your point, but I don't see an obvious fix -- we
don't check for the mode of the target library. We just check that
"$CC testprogram.c -L/path/to/libnuma -lnuma" works properly (actually,
this is how *all* checks are done in OMPI -- libnuma is somewhat of an
anomaly because most other packages/linux distros [depending on the
packaging] provide either just the .a or both the .a and the .so).

Brian / Ralf -- any ideas here?
